After all, the Kemper is pretty much spot on, afaik. So better than what?
What on earth are you talking about? If the claims are half true it'll destroy the Kemper? You want to hear before judging? Kemper left a huge hole in the market for... flashy displays, rotary knobs that double as footswitches, gorilla glass?
Come on, dude, I am totally with you, this sounds great, but enough already! I'll believe it when I see/hear it.
After all, Neural DSP plugins are good, but honestly compare them to the Kemper and they are not as good imho.
Well, the Kemper is *not* "spot on" - if you've ever tried to profile a bass amp, any kind of parallel signal chain, or honestly just some high-gain amps, you can't get it 1:1. Close enough even for me to be honest, but that means there is room for improvement.
It's not just flashy displays and rotary knobs - it's software companion that we know is going to be killer because of how good Neural's stuff already is. If they are advertising the ability to load plugin-tones onto the floorboard, it stands to reason that they could make a plugin that would load tones I'd capture in real life. Imagine being able to run your Kemper profiles in a DAW... that would be HUGE!
Not to mention the ability to profile parallel rigs (bass clean low/distorted high thing), and then mix/match up to 4 of them later. That allows you to do something like profile a guitar pedal and then run it infront of a profile of an amp later. That's something a newbie asks every 2 months for on this forum!
I am using real amps/cabs over both Neural/Kemper 99% of the time, but if I'm honest my Kemper has been used as a fancy tuner for the last ~2 years.
